{Embossed cookies}

Preparation time: 20 min

Cooking time: 15 min

Yield: 24 cookies


  • 400 g flour
  • 125 g sugar
  • 200 g butter, cold and diced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch of salt


  1. In a medium mixing-bowl, mix together all ingredientes to form a ball.
  2. Divide the dough in two or three, and gather each portion into a slightly flattened ball.
  3. Working with one ball of dough at a time, roll it out between two baking papers to a thickness of maximum 0,3 cm.
  4. Place an embossing mat (or crochet mat) on top of the dough, and using rolling pin, lightly roll over mat to imprint dough. Carefully remove mat.
  5. Freeze dough for 30 minutes, or place on the refrigerator for a couple of hours.
  6. Use a round cookie cutter to cut out cookies, and transfer them on a prepared baking sheet. Freeze for another 15 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 350ºF and slip cookies into the oven to bake for 10 minutes, until just slightly golden at the edges. Transfer on a rack to cool completely, and keep in a tin box in a dry place


  • If you do not have an embossing mat, or crochet mat, you might used an embossed glass, or a decorative rolling pin
  • To keep from burning the bottom of your cookies or over baking, use a double pan

      The first thing i would make with this mixer is the dough i would need to make my moms strufela. It is llttie fried dough like balls that you put honey and holiday sprinkles on!! Its a tradition i have kept every holiday season since she passed away in 1994. This would so help me out i have wanted one of these mixers for about ummm ten years!!!

    Great decorating idea! They look so elegant… I’ll have to keep my eye out for crochet mats.

    Love these cookies. I really like the technique.
    I made some that are very similar but with a very different technique.

    Thanks for this awesome blog and ideas.
    I want to make embossed cookies for our coming holiday, and I wanted a recipe that has no leavening agents, and this recipe worked perfect for me.
    My concern is that I need to make a large amount of these cookies and I wanted a more convince recipe. Butter recipes are time consuming and needs a lot of care while working with. Any recommendations.?
    Thanks again.
